Details

The large Alo (AH-loe) bell produces a deep, sustained cow bell sound, similar to the gankogui bell. The Alo bell originally comes from Nigeria, but is also used traditionally among the Ewe of Ghana and Togo (as a single-tone Gankogui bell). The sound is also appropriate for Afro-Cuban and Latin drumming music where a cow bell might otherwise be used. Wonderful sound and built to last.

These bells feature:

  • 9.5in tall bell, 13in tall
  • Hand forged from recycled iron by expert blacksmiths in Togo
  • Bright, sustained tones sing out over the ensemble
  • Durable construction, built with quality of sound as priority
  • Light-wood beater included
  • Due to the nature of the crafting process and materials used, each bell will have its own pitch and sound quality
  • African-made product from cultural artisans supported by Africa Heartwood Project
